This shelter consists of offering insects a home with several cavities for laying their eggs, for their larvae or just to spend the winter. This shelter replaces and plays the role of dead trees that we too often remove from our developments.
Bumblebees, wild and solitary bees, and many other insects beneficial to our gardens and flowerbeds will use these cavities.
City, countryside, forest, body of water and fields.
